Best Times to Visit British Virgin Islands

The best time to visit the British Virgin Islands is from September to November, before the crushing crowds of the winter holidays. Though the fall months see the highest amount of precipitation, they also welcome some of the lowest hotel rates you'll find all year. Keep in mind: Hurricane season runs from June to November, so keep an eye on the weather if you're planning a summer or fall visit. Divers should plan a trip for winter or spring – the summer is the absolute worst time for visibility underwater – and sailors should try to visit in March, during the BVI Spring Regatta.

December-February

This is when the BVI winter hat trick – sunny skies, pleasant breezes and very little rain – lures the most visitors. Temperatures linger in the low 70s to low 80s, and they aren't the only thing that's high. Some resorts charge upward of $500 a night for a room. This is a great time to party, however; the New Year's celebrations on Jost Van Dyke are some of the most popular throughout the Caribbean. 

Key Events:

  • Old Year's Night at Foxy's Tamarind Bar & Grille (Dec. 31)
March-August

It's unfortunate that more people don't experience the British Virgin Islands at this time of year because when the weather is good, it's truly divine. Temperatures range from the low 70s to mid-80s, and there are some great deals on airfare and hotels starting by about mid-April. For the best rates, plan a trip for early March, late April or May. That way you'll bypass the crowds and expense of Regatta season. Still, there is the threat of hurricanes from June to November, and it might be wise to purchase some travel insurance just in case. 

Key Events:

September-November

British Virgin Islands hotels and vacation rentals offer pretty good incentives to visit at this time of year. What's more, average temperatures rest in the low 80s. Be prepared for occasional rain showers as this is the wettest time of year.
